3 caches per day note erroneous

Michael Hoogkamer shared this problem 2 years ago
Solved

Hi,


Not sure when, but a while ago Geocaching.com has released a new version of their own app, with apparently a few updates to their api as well. This api is presumably used by Geocching4Locus, and allows for downloading 3 caches per day a.o. When I go to their site via a browser, and then select 'Import to Locus' as the option of viewing the cache, I get a popup note (see screenshot) that tells me to upgrade, and that the download quota will be reset according to a timestamp. However, the note tells me that I can download 3 caches per 525600 hours (roughly 60 years). The note states by when the quota will be reset, presumably, the following day, but it's been the same for a few days already. According to Geocaching.com it is not a fault on their side.


On a side note, absolutely love Locus.


Kind regards,

Michael Hoogkamer

Hello guys,


unfortunately this issue is definitely in Geocaching4Locus ( it most probably will be caused by some change on gc.com server ) and not in Locus, so we have to wait on answer from Arcao ( as main G4L developer ). Thanks for understanding. Meanwhile I just suggest to logout and login back in G4L add-on. It sometimes helps to solve such troubles. Thanks

Hello guys,


Sorry for late answer. I know about this problem which is caused by changes on Groundspeak side. The fix is near ready to roll out (I am waiting for last translations). At the moment the fix is available at Google Play beta channel (https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.arcao.geocaching4locus).


Unfortunately after latest changes on Groundspeak side isn't possible to retrieve listing, hint and waypoints for basic membership (it's a limited for 3 geocaches per day). This fix use lite / simple data (limited to 10000 geocaches per day) and add possibility to show Geocache web page inside a listing tab at Locus Map application. This at least fix problem with listing, hint (inside listing) and partially with logs (They are still available to get with Retrieve logs menu action in geocache detail dialog).
